Ukraine government survives in parliament while rage boils outside
By Natalia Zinets and Thomas Grove KIEV (Reuters) - Ukraine's embattled government held onto power in parliament on Tuesday but faced determined public protests and the rising risk of a financial crisis after spurning closer ties with the European Union under pressure from Russia. With protesters blockading central Kiev, President Viktor Yanukovich flew to China on a three-day state visit seeking loans and investment. He left a country in turmoil, torn once more between East and West in what his opponents hope will become a re-run of the 2004-5 'Orange Revolution' that overthrew Ukraine's post-Soviet order. Lawmakers rejected an opposition demand for a vote of no-confidence in the government of Prime Minister Mykola Azarov, while outside the chamber riot police faced off in freezing conditions against several thousand pro-EU protesters.
